Running Springs, CA, March 20, 2012, noon – Classes for Start Smart begin next week. The Start Smart program is a cooperative effort between the CHP, teenagers, and their parents. The goal of the class is to help young drivers and their parents understand the responsibilities associated with driving a motor vehicle. The class will also show how poor choices behind the wheel can change the lives of everyone involved. The purpose of this program is to reduce the number of teen-related injuries and deaths due to collisions. On Monday March 26 at 6pm, the California Highway Patrol (CHP) will present a Start Smart Class at the CHP, Arrowhead Office in Running Springs. There is no cost for attending the class.
